Student Email is Changing
KPU's IT department are making changes in 2023 that will affect student email, O365 and OneDrive accounts. This change will allow for greater connectivity between students and faculty at KPU. Some features of O365 that were previously unavailable to students will be made available. This allows students and faculty to collaborate within Office 365 apps like Microsoft Teams seamlessly.
